Find objects outdoors

This is such a useful trick. Your Lab is familiar with all the objects in your house and they carry smells that he is very familiar and comfortable with.

1 Allow him to sniff a particular object. It could be anything like a handkerchief, bunch of keys, glove, or a pouch.

2 Then take it and hide it somewhere outdoors.

3 After some time tell him to "find" and "fetch."

4 Use a leash at least in the initial stages. Later you can let him off the leash to run and locate the object.

5 Remember to gesture in the general direction of the object before you release him to find it.

After a little practice your pooch will be able to pick out your belongings from a heap of mixed articles that do not belong to you.
